If you haven't read the first two books, then i'd recommend them also! Great for young teens through to retirement and beyond, this is a great all round fantasy series for anyone that appreciates a well written story and enjoys having a little magic in their life! This would have to be my #1 Summer Read recommendation to all! Plane, train or beach..this is the book to banish the clouds and bring out the sun!
Action packed, full of magic and exciting set-pieces, The Sorceress continues the story of Josh and Sophie as they come to terms with their destiny as good battles evil. Using historical characters is a touch of genius and adds to the wonderment and splendour Michael White creates.
If you enjoy Harry Potter then give these books a try. You won't be disappointed.
The accuracy of the books is amazing and as soon as I had read the first book I was logging on to the internet to see if all these mythical creatures (and immortals) were "real" or real myths. Scott has brought so many familiar names into the books and the Sorceress didn't disappoint with familiar names.....don't worry I won't spoil it!!!
My books have now been passed around the family and I can safely say they will get ANYONE of ANY AGE.....HOOKED. As soon I had finished and I had read the extract from the next book in the series, The Necromancer, I was left wanting more and more and more and I honestly don't think I can wait another year...aaahhhhhh.
The only upside is that they are planning, or are in the process, of making the books into films. I think The Alchemyst is due out this year..CAN'T WAIT.
Hard to put down as each chapter brings new questions and you just have to read on!
Would highly recommend these stories if you like a mixture of supernatural magic, adventure, history and destiny!
Great third book of the series - the ending creates another mystery that needs anwers - can't wait for book four to be published!
Journey are heroes find themselves on. This book more than the previous two really starts to take off and the mythology and world M. Scott has created really springs to life and gives you the idea that anything is possible with regards to the eventual outcome of the story. The books are not without fault. At times the lead characters aka the Twins are not as likeable as they could be. I understand that the author is heading down the " Anakin Skywalker" route and this might well be an essential plot device; however that does not mean that the reader should not care about the welfare of the twins. Sophie does give you some moments that make you care for her story, Josh mainly has you wishing Dee or anyone within the near by vicinity would give him a stern talking to or failing that push him off the nearest cliff! In Saying that the author has created some wonderful characters that really do keep you wanting more. Flamel and particularly his wife Parnella (a scene stealer if ever there was one) are as interesting as the legends that surround them. Dee and all his Dark Elder friends really give the sense of pure menace, while also managing not to be one dimensional like most villains littering the pages of young adult fiction (here's looking at you Twilight).
The writing is of a very high standard and the author is without question one clever guy. These books, just as the HP ones before them, are aimed at young adults. Just like HP though they really are a great read for any age.
Although it's a cliché to say I am not the type of person that writes a review. I decided to put some words down in the hope I could encourage people to purchase a book that I think most who are fond of this genere will enjoy. I also hope that the series and author really gets the credit they deserve. The bottom line is that this series of books are a fantastic read, that very much do exactly what it promises on the tin.
